Chronicle: Orchestral Music Of Tony Gould

The definition of the word "chronicle" — put briefly "a record of events" — aptly fits the content of this recording. Chronicle forms an inspiring record of musical events in the life of Tony Gould, one of Australia's most creative musicians and composers.

The title piece 'Chronicle' features Tony Gould on piano, accompanied by Marco van Pagee and the Geminiani Orchestra.

This CD also features a piece for saxophone and string orchestra entitled 'The Subtlety of Time', a piece for flute choir entitled 'Wind Terrace', two pieces composed for CSIRO documentary films entitiled 'Living Soil 'and 'Plants in Action' and a piece entitled 'The Poetry of Music'; originally written to accompany the reading of Australian poetry; heard here without the text.

His career has embraced many styles of music, not least jazz and other improvisatory musics in addition to traditional and contemporary classical musics. He gives many concerts each year and for 50 years he has been involved in an extraordinary number of recording projects both as pianist and composer and has been at the forefront of music education in Australia via various tertiary institutions in Melbourne and throughout Australia.

Press quote

“In these works I am again reminded of the balancing contrasts of the pastoral and the aggressive advances of the industrial that pervades some early twentieth century European music ... Of the track 'The Poetry of Music' ... the music in this suite is often ephemeral, quite charming.”
